sgaIt’s been a big semester in SGA…and we’re not done yet. Join us on the Pedestrian Walkway tomorrow for a Big Orange Friday celebration. Wear your orange gear! Go Vols!

Three pieces of legislation have been sent to the dean of students:

  • Bill to mandate first-year orientation
  • Bill to introduce more complete campus maps
  • Bill to install gender neutral/family style restrooms

We will have more updates on these pieces of legislation as administrators take action. We also have plenty coming up during next week’s senate meeting at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 25 in the UC Shiloh Room.

Keny’s Corner: SGA President Kelsey Keny has a video update this week! Take a look here.

Coming soon: Rocky Top Wrap Up will give you a complete report of everything SGA has been up to this semester. Look for the wrap up report soon in Vol Update and on the SGA website.
